Fewer cars in Sydney CBD opens way for cycleway and more pedestrian space

According to a Sydney Morning Herald report, The City of Sydney said it was preparing a feasibility study to look into options for the cycleway after the light rail line was completed. It is considering a cycleway along the northern end of Castlereagh Street, which will be made possible if the state’s transport agency shifts bus routes to Elizabeth Street as part of an overhaul of the bus network. The bike path along Castlereagh Street between King and Liverpool streets will connect to an existing cycleway at the street’s southern end. The council has also been developing options for cycleways along the northern end of Pitt Street, and a part of King Street, which would help close a missing link in the CBD’s bike network.
